**Third Update**
I am in the middle of my second book.  Swept Off Her Stilettos is ok so far.  I did take a break to eat dinner and to work on one of my craft orders.  I took a bath since I was cold (don't worry I read in the tub)!  Now back to the couch with my kindle I go!


**Second Update**
I just finished Only His.  What a great story!  My review will come during the week.  Now I must take a break and then start another book.  


**UPDATE**
Have been reading for a little over an hour now and I really don't have much to say.  I want to get back to my book lol.

Dewey's 24 Hr Read A Thon started  this morning and I am running behind.  I had a late night, since I haven't been feeling well and just got up.  First on the list is to get a drink, get dressed in comfy clothes and settle down on the couch with my Kindle. 

It's chilly out today, so it's a good day to read.   I will be reading Susan Mallery's Only His to start with. After that I am not sure. 

Here is my Introductory meme before I begin reading.


1.  Where are you reading from today?


A.  Pennsylvania of course!
  
2.  Three random facts about me....


A.  I just started a small craft business to see if I can sell my crafts. http://www.facebook.com/tammyhobbies   (Feel free to check it out and place an order if you like anything.)  I am very grouchy in the mornings.  I refuse to turn my heat on in the house until sometime next month.


3.  How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hrs?


A.  I have 14 but that doesn't mean I'll get them all read.


4.  Do you have any goals for the read a thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, etc.?


A.  Nope I just want to read and have fun.


5.  If you are a veteran read a thoner, any advice for ppl doing this for the first time?


A.  Nope as this is my first time.




 I will do updates every hour if I can remember, as I have a habit of getting too into my books!

An outrageously large TBR stack is essential to the readathon :) Have a great day & enjoy your first 'thon!

Have a great, cozy readathon. I read one by Susan Mallery right after the April Readathon. It was foodie lit, therefore I loved it!

R! E! A! D!
Any book that you can see!

It sounds like you've picked some good books! I hope you're enjoying (and continue to enjoy) the readathon!

Don't worry about updating! I find it much more preferable to get suck into a good book during the read-a-thon. Makes the time go quicker.

Even reading in the tub: that's read-a-thon dedication. Keep it up: you're doing great!
(Cheering for you from Team Trix)

Hope you've had a good day readathoning!
